"Location can't be beat"

The location and service can't be beat. Every single staff member was friendly and beyond helpful. It is more of a boutique hotel and the bathrooms and rooms show a little age. Overall a nice stay, just a few details like worn furniture and worn out flooring, tile, etc. that could step it up and make this place really wonderful.

Booked through Luxury Resort Hotel Collection, and was pleasantly surprised! Super professional/friendly staff. Boutique-ey rooms, posh ambiance and great location. In room dining was right on time. They promptly fixed an issue on our bill without any trouble at all. Looking forward to staying there again!

stayed at the James during the new years weekend. Upon arrival the staff were more than helpful! Had a room on the 8th floor with a double bed. Bedroom was huge and the bathroom was beautiful. TIM was more than AMAZING !!! he went above and beyond to help us during our stay and helping us find things to do while we were staying there. Only downfall is this property does not have a pool but the staff make up for it with there service. The bar downstairs is nice, a little bit of an older crowd if that what your looking for.Location is perfect right beside Mag mile and very close to the bars and clubs. Def staying here again ( in march for that matter :)) Would highly recommend over the big chain hotels!!

"Wonderful Service & Staff"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

I would actually give this property a rating of 3 1/2. The staff bent over backwards and were SO kind and helpful throughout our stay, but it is not a 4 1/2 star quality property as Tripadvisor had inferred. OUTSTANDING location, and again, I can't say enough about the staff. Room service was the fastest I've EVER experience, and I used to be IN the hotel business! The rooms need some work (paint, etc.) and it is an older hotel, but a good value. They normally have a town car available to drop you off within three miles of the property, but unfortunately was out of service during our stay, which would have made it an even better value had we been able to take advantage of it!

"Amazing Value"

I didn't know what to expect from this boutique but, it turned out great. Location was amazing! service was fantastic. They had everything you would need while traveling. We were only there one night but, we plan to go back. Below they ask how expensive it is. I think the price was mid range but, the value was amazing for what you pay. the only down side and its with any hotel in Chicago is parking was $65 a night.
